Someone Like Me (Hardcover)
This is a book that just gets stranger the more you think about it. On the surface, it's a fast paced thriller with all the fixings, including murder, mayhem, and madness. But it also raises lots of "what if?" questions. What if there was a world where something just a little different had happened? Would there be someone like me there? And what if that person wasn't the hero of the story, but the villain? —Caitlin— From Staff Favorites List- Winter 2019
But there's another side to Liz---one that's dark and malicious. She will do anything to get her way, no matter how extreme.
And when this other side of her takes control, the consequences are devastating.
